"When Heroes Becomes Legends"
by Astrid Claessen & Joost Mulders
In 2015 Tim De Vriendt and Stef Schuermans picked up the gauntlet and decided to fill a gap in the running calendar of the BeNeLux region. Up until that point there were hardly ultra-trailrunevents that got close to the 100 km distance let alone further or self supported.
On March 4 2016, 48 brave runners toe-ed the starting line of the first edition of the Legends Trail
, a brutal semi self supported 250 km trail
through the Belgian Ardennes.
The rest is history.
Legends Grand Slam
Three additional ultrarunning events emerged from the brains of Stef and Tim and a new standard for long distance running in the BeNeLux was set.
But even more remarkable, an entire community grew around the Legends Trails events.
The documentary "When heroes become Legends" follows 6
runners in their attempt to finish all four of the Legends Trails Trails events within a year, an achievement that will reward them the title Legends Grand Slam
Sportics Trail Team
Three of our Sportics sponsored athletes participated at the first legends trail in 2016. Their names are Rinus Holvoet
, Juan Vandenweghe
and Martino Corneillie
. Unfortunately none of them reached the finish line…
The stubborn donkeys started this race again in 2017. since then at sportics we call them heroes
! Two of them reached the finish line that year…
The last standing donkey started this race once again in 2018 but unfortunately didn’t reachthe finish... We still call him a hero!
One of these heroes obtained a special status…
Martino corneillie is one of the 6 runners that is followed in this documentary in his attempt to finish all four of the Legends Trails events within a year.
In this achievement he is rewarded with the title “Legends Grand Slam - finisher”.
since then at sporics we call him the “Über hero”
